      Fantastic Museum, good exhibit, most pieces were donated by US Jewish supporters of the museum. There is a good softcover catalog (also includes Oceanic) that is available, but around $100.
      BTW YAHOO downloads photos in a random order, no idea why, but it mixes up the photos of the plaques identifying some of the pieces, and at 75 photos not wort hthe time to 're-arrange'. Sorry about that.

      The photos are located at:
